Variants: moving property values to another property

Hi there,
When I create Components, add Variants to Properties, etc., it happens that I add a Variant under wrong Property.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find a way to move a ready Variant under another Property (e.g. drag-and-drop or via some edit menu).
Please add such ability.
If anyone has a workaround, please let me know! Thank you.

Hi @DP-SD! I don’t quite understand your proposal. Could you tell us more or show what you want?

Variants have properties and values ​​that you can edit, reorder, and delete in the right sidebar. You can read the help center article: https://help.figma.com/hc/en-us/articles/360056440594-Create-and-use-variants

I’m asking how to do the following:

Thank you, now I understand. You want to move the value of a property to another property.

I’ve edited the title to make it clear.

Yes, you cannot move property values ​​between other properties. But you can edit and add new values.

For example, select the desired Variant on the canvas, then change the property value or add a new property value in the Property panel under Variants.
add-new-value

So please add such feature, to move Variants between Properties.

Btw, I think your title is less clear since Figma uses “Variant” and “Property” and not “Property Value”. See attached screenshot.

A Variant is a component in a set of components on the canvas.
